delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest golfers in the world, taking questions on his taxes and that old fair share of his. mickelson explaining why he backed off on gripes that more than 60% of the his income goes to the government. >> my apology is, for talking about it publicly because i shouldn't take advantage of the forum that i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change over these issues. i love this state. i grew up here. i love it here. and i'm certainly concerned for it. i never had a problem paying my fair share because, i know that there are very few countries in the world that let you do what you do and, live in this environment. bill:
controversial. senator john kerry is much beloved by everybody and capitol hill and even john mccain said he would endorse him. so that will go through without controversy. i think both of these men will be confirmed previously. but people don't think the secretary of defense choice is a signal maybe we will not be as aggressive as some with light in defending israel. host: that is chuck hagel. minimum wage, you expect such issues to come up? guest: first, one of the things that was most interesting about the speech yesterday, coming off a campaign that was so focused on jobs, was the relative lack of a direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. now, this was not a set of policy proposals, which woodpeck which there would be more about that in the state of the union. but it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address that he gave yesterday. as far as some of these labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the state's. i think there is a national political aspect to this. i don't know, frankly, exactly what plans they ha
. and he'll be introduced by senators john mccain, by elizabeth warren and the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's expected to be very different than the fiery hearing yesterday in that very same room where secretary clinton made a passionate defense to republican senators aggressive questioning about what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it's our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i want to bring in ron, national correspondent and editorial director, and michael crowley, times deputy washington bureau chief. good morning, ron, let me start with you. i thought the hearing yesterday had so many fascinating moments to it. should be very different today, don't you think? >> yeah. that was probably the best moment you pulled out there. that was secretary clinton being forceful, showing some accountability,

with secretary clinton and senator mccain to introduce my senior senator and my friend, senator john kerry. i have the privilege speaking for a man i know will continue in the tradition of john quincy adams and christian herder as great secretaries from the commonwealth of massachusetts. although john learned much about diplomacy overseas and in the senate, he would be the first to tell you that massachusetts is also a great teacher of diplomatic skills, whether it was negotiating his way to make the ballot as long shot underdog in a five-way heavily contested state convention back in 1982, or the way he brought labor and management to the table, locked the parties in his senate office over a long weekend, brought in duncan doughnuts and negotiated an end to the 92-day long brockton nurses strike. if anyone wants to learn diplomacy, come to our massachusetts politics. john's story is well-known to all of us, as a youth of a son of a young foreign officer and learning about foreign policy at the dinner table each night to his service in combat in vietnam. less well-known is the story of his fo

's right, john mccain tried, too, then had to back away when he ran for the republican nomination. the president in talking to his aides, his advisors this morning thinks on immigration he has an opportunity here in part because of his electoral victory. republicans looked at that said, we can no longer continue as a party that has such dismal showing with minorities and young voters. we have to improve our position on the yes of immigration. former florida governor jeb bush said that during the last republican campaign during the last presidential campaign. so the president thinks that by that outside pressure will create a condition where republicans will be willing to work with him. so he's putting pressure from the outside but then saying and thinking according to this advisor, that he really can make common cause with some republicans in the senate and in particular to do something big on immigration. >> john, thank you. bill whitaker, our correspondent in los angeles has been watching today's events along with a group of latinos who voted for mr. obama. bill, what are they
newtown. senator john mccain is on the senate foreign relations panel now. so is senator rand paul. on the senate side we may have some more pointed questions, but we will have to see. on the house side, they say they want to have more bipartisan attitude towards hearings. it is hard to tell at this point. there's a lot of new blood. this is their first chance, a big public opportunity to show where they are headed. so it is hardr -- to tell. probably the senate will have more pointed questions. host: give us a hint of something you will be watching for today. is there anything secretary clinton could do to damage your future politically? anything the republicans could do that might signify how confirmation hearings could go in the next couple weeks for secretary of state? guest: a few lawmakers, and the gramm in particular, have said that they had wanted to hear her testify before taking action on senator john kerry. -- lindsey graham in particular has said. the fallout from benghazi is already happened, to a large extent. president obama's first choice to be secretary of state, s

, it could happen. we have know in the past, like even people like cindy mccain, the wife of john mccain, back in 2008, she wound up in a sling because of a bad strong handshake on a campaign line. so it's been known to happen and claims have been paid out. i think it's a really tough one. i think you just got to be careful. but the guy's got to work for a living and says he has a problem ever since it happened. >> gretchen: yeah. it kind of reminds me of that hot coffee thing and starbucks. like don't you know coffee's hot? here is question number three, my nephew has been going to a methadone clinic to get off drugs for eight years. he asked the clinic to lower his dose and they refused. could they sue him for keeping them on this drug? n this is a really interesting one. this would be in the realm of medical malpractice, meaning the doctor or the clinic acted in a way that deviated from the community standards in terms of the way that people should be treated. i am bringing and our firm is bringing a similar suit here in new york state right now. a man who died as a result of a doctor
